Old school hotel in need of revamp, although a perfect economic one night stay. Kids enjoyed the pool and Jacuzzi. Staff was very friendly and accommodating. Don't expect modern luxuries at that rate!

Always space available. Rooms as good as can be expected at the price. hotel is a little tired but maintained well. restaurant can be touch and go but generally acceptable. bar is terrible and smokey however and should be avoided. staff are magnificent and always helpful overall you can do a lot worse in Swellendam

Rooms smell and were only made up at 5pm when check-in was at 2pm. The aircons didn't work and were extremely noisy. The one room's toilet didn't flush. Towels weren't available for use at the pool as promised.

Enjoy staying over on our way to Hartenbos. Staff friendly and helpful. Only overnight did not have breakfast. Suggestion for hotel management to make a sign for guests not to give any money for the hawkers in front of the hotel, rather buy food.

Service in the hotel restaurant was slow, wifi was only available in the lobby, although we were not able to log on at all during our visit. The two rooms...

Enjoyed the stay. Many facilities to chose from. Restaurants are close enough to walk to, so driving required. Pool, etc. kept very clean and neat. Staff was very friendly and helpful. We enjoyed our stay here and will definitely visit again.

A simple hotel in a simple and little city. Very clean but very simple room. Internet wasn't available in the rooms, only at the restaurant. I slept there because was on a road trip in South Africa. It's a good cost x benefit.
